Another Hidden Gem Rescued From Cassette Obscurity
Ron, where do you find this stuff?
Two hours of Disco before it died!
As a high schooler back in the day, I couldn't stand the stuff, or the folks who were into it.
Now, some of it (saved via this unscoped aircheck)can a guilty pleasure on my drive to work!
Radio used to be so good!
Thanks again for what you do!!!

Disco Radio....radio history, like it or not.
Being at the age of 16 when disco (well, mainstream exploitation of disco that is) exploded, it was kinda hard to handle all that mess flying over my head and through my ears; among it's riptides, high school was split apart and fighting each other with the standard rocks vs. dancers clique. So I went on my own musical vibe...the closest I came to Disco Segre was with the Xanadu movie....but then, Xanadu was a disco movie with no disco in it...but that's for another argument.
It wasn't until recently that I found the extent of the damage...Disco Radio!! Damn! Glad to see this unedited monster archived here as evidence of this cultural explosion. You can find small pieces of the disco radio format at Airchexx.com and do a site search for 'disco'. THIS is as raw and dangerously real as it gets!! Only thing missing are the commercials, but that's a minor point...unless the station' spot had disco BGM.
If you can survive this (the music and the audio quality), you can survive pretty much anything pop culture can throw at you....and have fun, too.
Good damned luck!
